We’re open (almost) all summer

The Episentum office is open for customer service all summer except weeks 30-31 (23 July – 3 August).

We would like to wish all our Customers, Clients, Companions, and Contacts a pleasant, dye-enhanced summer with a yellow sun, blue skies, green trees, and the odd white cloud.

 

New EpiGrammer version: make your best Biacore™ even better

We have launched a new version of the EpiGrammer™ software that improves the performance even of top notch SPR instruments. Contact us on sales@episentum.com for a copy of our latest Application Note 26 to learn how the new version improves the signal-to-noise ratio and reduces the disturbance level of the Biacore™ T200 SPR instrument.

The new EpiGrammer 3.0 version uses improved algorithms for enhanced performance of Biacore™ T100/T200 systems. We are offering a limited number of free trial licenses to the pilot version of EpiGrammer 3.0 to selected customers. If you’re interested, please contact us on sales@episentum.com.

 

Check your SPR injections: discount offer

We are happy to offer our Validation Kit B9003 in packs of three for the price of two: €180 in Europe and $220 elsewhere (+ freight). We also include a 1-month free trial license to our EpiGrammer™ software in the package. The offer is valid throughout February 2018.

Accurate Surface Plasmon Resonance analysis requires high quality sample injection pulses. Most commercial SPR instruments offer pre-programmed “System Check” procedures that diagnose injection pulse quality in order to detect e.g. leakage, blockage, or dispersion in the microfluidic system. However, such tests are based on pure refractive index measurements, and are plagued by a number of well-known errors and artefacts.

LE-SPR offers a rigorous injection test that monitors the true transport of analyte in to and out of the detection flow cell without any refractive index artefacts. Using our LE-SPR Validation Kit, the true shape of injection pulses can be accurately assessed by simple inspection.

Learn how by checking out our Technical Note 012. Please contact us at sales@episentum.com for a copy of the TechNote.

 

Episentum presents at K4DD meeting, Berlin, October 16-18 2017

Episentum will present a poster at the K4DD meeting “Binding kinetics: Time is of the essence” in Berlin, October 16-18 2017. K4DD is an Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) program on Kinetics in Drug Discovery. The title of our poster is “Kinetic Analysis of Small-Molecule Binding with Label-Enhanced SPR”.

Looking forward to getting and update on binding kinetics, and to presenting the potential of LE-SPR in this area. For any information on LE-SPR prior to the meeting, or to book a one-to-one meeting, please contact us at info@episentum.com.

 

Presentation at Drug Discovery 2017 Meeting, Liverpool, UK, October 3-4 2017

Episentum will give an oral presentation and exhibit a poster at the Drug Discovery 2017 Meeting, Liverpool, UK, 3-4 October 2017. The title of both contributions is “Label-Enhanced SPR for Improved Surface Plasmon Resonance Analysis of Small Molecules and Biomolecules”.

Looking forward to meeting you in Liverpool! For any information on LE-SPR prior to the meeting, or to book a one-to-one meeting, please contact us at info@episentum.com.
